It has been a hot and dry summer for many of you.
We have been lucky to have rain on and off for the last few weeks. Cooler temps and late summer blooms have made it a wonderful August.
Let's celebrate the end of summer!
A simple dinner for two!
I bought this tablecloth and matching napkins at Kohl's several years ago on clearance but this is my first time using them
the blues, browns and greens are some of my favorite colors
To tone down this busy pattern I used a solid blue placemat from dollar tree and brown rattan chargers found at a thrift shop
I found these blue plates marked down at TJ Maxx
I love the beach feel they have
A matching napkin
with amazing shell napkin rings found at a thrift shop a couple of summers ago
I added a vintage brown wine glass and a blue water glass to complement the colors in the tablecloth and of course they were thrift shop finds
A view of the place setting. The flatware is some I've had for a long time.
For a centerpiece I pulled out a vintage blue vase and added some Hydrangea blooms that are turning a pretty shade of green
I added my Pier 1 bird salt & pepper shakers
they are just too cute!
The white shell for a butter dish completes this setting
Thanks for joining me and celebrating these last lovely days of summer

I'm also keeping all of those affected by Isaac in my thoughts and prayers
